About the Documentary

WHAT IS IT?

The God of the universe is a God who speaks. It’s this divine self-expression that sustains creation and reveals the thoughts of God to humanity through the pages of the Bible. But how do we know the Bible is the Word of God and not merely the words of men? The God Who Speaks is a feature-length documentary that explores the evidence of the Bible’s inspiration and authority through some of the most highly respected voices within evangelicalism. Answering common objections and observing the effects of denying biblical authority, this film is intended to reveal the trustworthiness of the Bible’s claims while calling viewers to a response worthy of this gracious God.

WHY NOW?

We live in a day where the very notion of reality has eroded to the point that extreme pluralistic subjectivity is the normal basis for truth and the engagement of truth claims. Even the ability to debate is undermined by pluralistic sensitivity. In short, it is an age in which – more than ever – evangelical Christians need to be clear on the authority, inerrancy, and sufficiency of the Bible. And yet, sadly, we see professing evangelicals wavering on basic points of doctrine and even whole denominations buying in to the current intellectual project. This results in confusion among congregants, claims of hypocrisy by onlookers, and a lack of power in living transformed lives. It is in this milieu that The God Who Speaks is hoping to express clearly God’s intention in giving His word and the response that is demanded by those who hear.
